Coatigan Session

Coatigan Session

(sessions are 5 weeks from date below)
  • Monday, 1st October

What to expect...

7pm to 9pm - 40 Rock Lane - £50 - 5 weeks

We will spend the 5 weeks making the 'Bianca' Coat from 'Sew Me Something' Patterns. The 'Bianca' is a cross between a coat and a cardigan. It is a deceptively easy make, and a great pattern for beginner to intermediate sewist, yet super stylish once made up.

This Coatigan has a drop shoulder for ease and comfort, with turned back sleeves for a relaxed and casual feel. The collar drapes down to a waterfall front, or can be buttoned across to give a double breasted look.

Boiled wool, Wool suiting or a double jersey are all perfect fabrics for this pattern. It could also be given more of a coat feel if you made this from drapey tweed or a fleece. If you need some fabric inspiration we have created a Pinterest Board for you here!

You will need to purchase both Fabric and the Pattern for this session. Fully details will be sent to you upon booking but you will need approx 2.5m of fabric

Is this session for me?... This is a perfect session for anyone who has completed the Beginners Sewing Session and would like a simple make to take the first steps in sewing clothing. It is also great for anyone who wants to make outerwear or for those who would like to use wool or knitted fabrics for the first time. Also a brilliant first make with an overlocker if you have been on our 'learn to love your overlocker' session.

You leave the session at the end of the 8 weeks with a beautiful coatigan... handmade by you!
